acting Acting in air

Has anyone ever heard of the phrase "acting in air"? I watched a webinar online, and one of the filmmakers said actors sometimes act in air, which is no good. Does that mean actors don't connect with their partners? That's what acting in air means?

Thanks.

You heard something wrong.

I never heard of that either.
But the biggest problem most actors have is overacting. that's generally what you should look out for.
 
Remember that acting coaches are out to make money. If they can offer you "something new" that no other acting coach has, (BS or not), it's worth money to them, but will not necessarily get you work. If they have classes that you have confidence in, go for it. But if you have to PAY for their opinion, you might want to do some research before you put your money on the table.

I've never heard the phrase, Since you watched this webinar you have
much more context than I do. Actors not connecting with their partners.
Is that what it meant to you? Perhaps you understood correctly.
